1. It’s not a lie that I’ve kind of been dreaming of girl scout cookies. I don’t think I’ve eaten one in years! I’m team caramel delights though.
2. Citrus cupcakes with blood orange buttercream! HELLO!
3. Last week I walked into Max’s room and he and Emilia were sitting on his bed and he was reading her a book. I just about had a heart explosion!
4. How to do the thing you’re avoiding. Um story of my life.
5. TV things!! Not much to report though I’m considering watching Night Stalker on netflix which would most likely be the worst decision of my life since I loathe anything scary and would have nightmares forever. Have you watched it?! I’ve pretty much never been so desperate to go to a movie theater in my life too. I know you can rent them some places but up until recently even that was closed for us with local restrictions.
6. Anyone else having a hard time feeling positive about spring and summer (and everything after)? Praying for normal life to resume soon. When I look back on what we were doing last year at this time, my mind is blown.
7. Love reading about beauty products people can’t live without. There are many of these I’ve never tried!
8. I had an amazing reading weekend (it’s when I get most of my binge-reading done, haha!) and I just finished how to fail at flirting. It was such a cute and quick read – light, fun and exactly what I needed at this time.

I thought that how to fail at flirting was really good – and a fascinating representation of how domestic violence can look different than you’d expect. I did think it was the WORST title for the book & didn’t represent it at all!
so agree! that title is so misleading!
do not watch night stalker. its SO scary. we stopped it halfway through because it wasn’t enjoyable at all. tried the Tiger documentary last night and its super interesting (though not at all something i would normally be into…).
oh we watched the tiger special and LOVED it!
Have you watched Halt and Catch Fire (Netflix originally an AMC show )? I remember seeing ad for it back when it was showing but didn’t really get what it was about – started watching it recently and it’s very well done. The acting ,the Character development and the fun of seeing a glimpse into the early days of tech boom. (Which sounded like a snore but it isn’t !)
As for spring and summer … it’s crazy to think this time last year we were all living normal lives! it’s hard to feel that this summer will be normal – even with vaccines rolling out – I want to plan the vacations we cancelled but am very hesitant. Whomp whomp.
i know, totally agree!!
i haven’t watched that. i should start it!
It was great. 4 seasons of what it is to be a visionary , take risks , fail, sacrifice .. how it would be to be trying to do something no one had thought of and to be in the middle of change and yet still doubted. *Also ? What it would mean to be a strong brilliant woman/ women navigating the tech world of men. It really touched on so many themes. the casting was tremendous and the chemistry between them all on screen was fantastic and believable.
I don’t always like to recommend shows as everyone has different tastes , but this show has a little something for everyone.
your ability to read so much is always astounding to me! I imagine you are go-go-go from like 6am until midnight with work and the kids. I do NOT have that much to manage on a daily basis (just one kid) but every time you update about another book you finished, I just wonder how!? and does she ever sleep? and if not, how does she function, especially while pregnant? you’re superwoman!
i thought of this over the weekend because i get this question so much. MUCH of my reading happens over the weekend, and honestly it’s just so much more now since covid! it’s not unusual for me to read 2 books a weekend – mostly once the kids are in bed and into the night since we aren’t going anywhere. i know it sounds crazy!! i don’t sleep a ton but i also don’t get a lot of time to read during the week! haha!
You should totally watch The Night Stalker. So good!
Watch the Nightstalker. You really get a glimpse into police investigations and the toll it takes on them and his victims.
I’m a native of L.A. and was 20 years old that long hot summer. I remember his terror reign and how he scared everyone in this City. I do not ever remember this city being so focused on one news story—-and I lived through the Hillside Strangler case a few years earlier and the OJ trial ten years later.
I thought it was a well made series.
